The Kansas Highway Patrol says it happened on U.S. 75 Highway, five-tenths of a mile north of the K-9 junction, around 2:45.

Sjuggerud was transported to the Holton Community Hospital for the treatment of suspected minor injuries.

The Patrol says he was wearing a seatbelt when the wreck occurred.
